EL SEGUNDO, Calif., April 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- DaVita Inc.

DaVita's Village Vitality, a DaVita(R) group dedicated to expanding wellness throughout the DaVita Village, challenges teammates through various interactive wellness programs such as Match the Mayor, an initiative where teammates set personal or physical fitness goals and share experiences with Kent Thiry, DaVita Chairman and CEO, who chronicles his results too.

As part of the Lifestyle Management Programs for tobacco cessation, stress management and weight management, all benefit-eligible teammates are given five telephonic personal coaching sessions as well as unique tools to aid teammates through the challenge, such as a wellness workbook, portion distortion tools and measuring tape to size and compare their progress. DaVita teammates can also chronicle their progress and monitor their calorie intake online. A self-paced program is also available, giving teammates the option to use the materials without the telephonic coaching.

Mary Kay Gilhooly, Manager of Village Vitality, said, "Our commitment to our patients begins with our teammates. We are healthcare leaders. It is our responsibility to take the lead in managing our own health and wellness, and in the end, improving the health of our Village."
